Synopsis: 'Two imprisoned teenagers, one black, one white, form a perilous bond. As the young women serve time, they forge a plan for survival. When the outside world proves even more dangerous than the jail itself, their private world becomes an untenable practice ground for their new lives. And I And Silence explores the fierce dreams of youth and the brutal reality of adulthood in 1950's America.'

The creative team behind And I And Silence includes Rachel Hauck for scenic design, Bradley King for lighting, Clint Ramos for costume design and Elisheba Ittoop for sound.
